Wastewater treatment facility to service Park Ridge to Yarrabilba development corridor

Council has begun the search for a site for a state-of-the-art wastewater (sewage) treatment facility.

This facility is needed to service the development corridor which extends from Park Ridge to Yarrabilba. As development progresses and the population increases in this corridor, additional critical infrastructure such as wastewater treatment facilities and trunk pipelines is required.

Approximately 10 hectares of land is required to build the treatment facility, with an additional 550m surrounding this for a buffer between the facility and developed areas. The site needs to:

  • be near the development areas (PDF 968 KB) it will service
  • have a sufficient flood free area for key structures
  • be near a place where highly treated water from the facility can be released such as a waterway, irrigation area or a business area where the water can be used.

There is also the opportunity to incorporate community amenities as part of this project.

Council is co-funding this project with the Queensland Government and coordinating it in consultation with regulatory authorities and community members. Council’s Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance will undertake all planning and design activities.

Cedar Grove Wastewater (Sewage) Treatment Plant

Council’s Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance is designing an advanced wastewater (sewage) treatment plant at Cedar Grove. This facility will provide essential services to the growing community in the Queensland Government’s Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area (PDA).

Under the Queensland Government’s ShapingSEQ South East Queensland Regional Plan 2017, Logan City’s south west region is identified as a major hub for residential, commercial and industrial development. This region includes the Greater Flagstone PDA.

As development progresses and the population increases in the PDA, additional critical infrastructure such as water and wastewater pipelines and treatment facilities will be required.

Current status

On 13 July 2018 the Minister for Economic Development Queensland (MEDQ) approved the Priority Development Area (PDA) development application for the first stage of the Cedar Grove wastewater treatment plant pursuant to s.85(4)(b) of the Economic Development Act 2012. The MEDQ has decided to grant all of the PDA development approval applied for, subject to PDA development conditions set out in the PDA decision notice.

The PDA decision notice and approved plans/documents can be viewed in the MEDQ Development Approvals Register on the Department website

Construction of the first stage of the treatment plant is likely to commence during August 2018, and will continue for approximately 20 months.  A works notice will be uploaded here and provided to directly affected residents prior to works starting.

Inflow & infiltration inspection program

The Logan wastewater system experiences large volumes of overflows during severe wet weather events. These types of events have a significant impact on the wastewater network, overwhelming its capacity and resulting in wastewater overflows into the environment.

Stormwater entering the wastewater network as a result of defective, improper and illegal stormwater connections, principally from residential connections, is a major cause of wastewater overflows. By identifying sources and lessening the risk of stormwater entering the wastewater system, Logan City Council is committed to significantly reducing the number of wastewater overflows that occur during wet weather.

With this goal in mind, Council undertakes systematic inspection programs to identify defective, improper and illegal stormwater connections to the wastewater system, in accordance with the provisions of sections 133 and 134 of the Local Government Act 2009. Details of the inspection programs are included below.

For further information please contact Council's Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance on (07) 3412 9600.

Shailer Park

An inspection program in Shailer Park will commence on 1 March 2018. Voluntary Compliance letters will then be sent to property owners where defects have been identified. Council will be liaising with property owners and providing assistance/advice where possible to ensure that these defects are rectified.

Mount Warren Park

An inspection program in Mount Warren Park will commence in mid-March 2018. Voluntary Compliance letters will then be sent to property owners where defects have been identified. Council will be liaising with property owners and providing assistance/advice where possible to ensure that these defects are rectified.

Council appreciates property owners' participation in the inspection program, and the support shown for reducing wastewater overflows into our environment.

Waterford West and Loganlea

An inspection program in Waterford West will commence in early-April 2018. Voluntary Compliance letters will then be sent to property owners where defects have been identified. Council will be liaising with property owners and providing assistance/advice where possible to ensure that these defects are rectified.

Council appreciates property owners' participation in the inspection program, and the support shown for reducing wastewater overflows into our environment.
